Cold Sores -
Cold Sore Remedies
by Denny Bodoh
Cold sores are virus created sores, most commonly appearing on the face. The
virus that creates your cold sore is the herpes simplex virus - either the
type 1 or type 2. Other types of the herpes simplex virus are responsible
for causing such illnesses as chicken pox and mono.
Embarrassing cold sores
The herpes virus that causes these embarrassing cold sores is extremely
contagious and infects about 9 out of 10 people worldwide. It is a true
global epidemic. Historical records show that this was true even 2000 years
ago in ancient Rome. The Romans had such a problem with cold sore infections,
they did away with kissing in public ceremonies.
Embarrassing cold sores normally appears on the edge of the lip or near the
nose. It is passed on to others primarily by kissing. Quite likely that is
how you caught it too. The herpes virus will usually establish a lifetime
home in the nerve fibers nearest the point of first infection. This virus
will then create a sore in about the same place every time. If you have
embarrassing cold sores that show up in different spots around your mouth,
each one is from a different infection. Most often, during one cold sore
outbreak, we spread the virus to new locations by accident.
Antibiotics for cold sore treatment?
cold sores are not life threatening like other viral infections, such as bird
flu. And like other virus related diseases, there are no antibiotics for
cold sore treatment. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses. The
damage created by the cold sore virus only affects the surface of the skin.
It is fortunate that this type of herpes virus does not spread internally
like the herpes that causes chickenpox.
It is the replication process of the herpes simplex virus that causes the
actual sore. This virus cannot reproduce itself. It enters a nerve cell near
the surface of the skin. It then forces the cell to create virus clones.
Once the cell is full, the virus destroys it to release all the new virus.
This destruction of millions of cells close together creates the visible
cold sore - a weeping open ulcer.
What is the best way to get rid of a cold sore?
On average, a cold sore a last about 3 to 4 weeks, before total healing. This
is a long time to be socially sidelined. They are quite painful and
often cause headaches, fever and swollen glands. There are
many hyped up cold sore remedies in the stores and on the internet. Most do
not work very well, or are considered comfort remedies, not healing
remedies. What is the best way to get rid of a cold sore? A
couple household items that cure cold sores are ice and teabags. Applying
ice, or some cold object, discourages the herpes virus from replicating.
Often it can drive the virus back into hibernation. The natural chemicals
found in tea not only fight virus but help heal the wound. Both are a bit
messy and inconvenient in public.
